Description For those looking for an escape from the daily stress of modern life, running a guesthouse in the heart of The English Lake District must be one of the great daydreams for many a hard working commuter. So what is holding them back? Well quite often it is simply that the initial outlay to get into the business can be prohibitive. However, 2 Cambridge Villas may just be the answer to those dreams.

This immaculate and attractive stone built terraced property is held on a 12 year lease from The Kelsick Trust from 12th May 2015 at an annual rent of just £10,000 (you could barely rent a simple two or three bedroomed cottage for less locally) and the current owners have enjoyed an excellent return for their efforts in creating a simply splendid guesthouse here in the heart of the National Park. A new 12 year lease is currently being negotiated.

The Kelsick Trust was founded nearly 300 years ago essentially to provide education for the young of the town back then, and the revenue raised today from their local investments is still given back to the community in the form of educational grants. As a consequence, this charitable trust is regarded as one of the best landlords locally for their long term vision and standing in the community.

Currently trading well below the VAT level as the current owners operate only for a few months each year as their lifestyle choice, there is plenty of scope to take the already impressive income up to the next level if desired. The current owners already enjoy a healthy and steady annual turnover which in the year ending March 2022 was close on £60,000 (plus just over £10,000 of coronavirus grant aid) based on just 8 months trading, £34,000 in 2021 (plus over £15,000 of coronavirus grant aid) based on just 4 months trading. The current owners have also chosen to only let 4 of the letting bedrooms, for some it is really all about the lifestyle whilst earning a tidy supplemental income! Trading Accounts are available to genuinely interested parties.

The guesthouse already benefits from a great deal of repeat business with many guests returning year after year. This is not difficult to understand as anyone who views will quickly appreciate. Immaculately and stylishly presented, the three storey accommodation is just the right size to be comfortably run by a couple and includes a porch, entrance hall, guests dining/breakfast room, family style kitchen/owners living room, conservatory and laundry/drying room on the ground floor with two en-suite letting bedrooms on the first floor (one double and one family room) along with the owners bedroom suite. There is a further family room and two more double bedrooms on the top floor, a large lockable store perfect for guests bikes etc in the rear yard and the current owners rent four allocated car parking spaces locally for their guests to supplement the two spaces which they and their predecessors have enjoyed at the rear of the property (see below). The premises are offered fully furnished in the public areas.

Ambleside enjoys an all year round tourist trade, and is a bustling little market town at the very heart of the Lake District National Park, which was afforded World Heritage Site status in 2017 which will inevitably attract yet more visitors from around the globe in the coming years. Despite its prominent setting, 2 Cambridge Villas remains a lovely peaceful spot in which to reside with beautiful fells and lakes all around you and a real community to settle into. The perfect combination. Why not come and see for yourself?

Description: Superbly placed in the heart of beautiful Grasmere, Heidi’s Lodge offers adaptable B and B accommodation including a café with around 28 covers plus more outside, a commercial kitchen, 5 wonderfully stylish letting bedrooms all with exceptional en-suites plus 3 staff or owners en-suite bedrooms. The property is available by an assignment of a 20 year lease from 2018 at a rental of £4,835 pcm. The lease permits the premises to be used as a café, delicatessen and bed and breakfast hotel.

Heidi’s is an attractive and distinctive stone and slate built property which you cannot fail to notice as you pass through the centre of this delightful Lakeland village with its double frontage, balconies and outside seating but impressed as you may be from the roadside, a visit inside will leave you in no doubt that this is a rare opportunity.

The main café area is bright and welcoming and has around 28 covers, with approximately 8 more outside. Behind the counter is a very handy little prep area separate from the main commercial kitchen which is at the rear of the property and is very well equipped, supplemented by a further large preparation area, which has seen service as an owners sitting room in the past. The licensed café also doubles as the splendid breakfast room for the overnight B&B guests who can enter via a separate central main hallway to access the luxurious bedrooms on the two stories above. There is also a small office and a guests toilet on the ground floor.

The five double letting bedrooms are all individually styled and immaculately presented, and everyone will be impressed not only by the quality of the en-suite bathrooms, but also the sheer size of them – offering comfort and relaxation in equal measure. Two of these bedrooms also enjoy large private balconies, and one forms a unique two storey suite with its own sitting room, four piece bathroom and a top floor bedroom (which many might consider an ideal owners suite). There are wonderful fell views to be enjoyed from many rooms, including to Stone Arthur, Seat Sandal and Silver How.

There are three staff bedrooms (fast becoming a "must-have" feature for this kind of business in The Lake District) although these could also equally suit as private owners accommodation if desired, and each again has excellent en-suite facilities.
